My son has a few loves in his life…mainly his parents, his Grandpas, and his Daniel Tiger. I would be really scared to ask him to choose a favorite. 🙂
He LOVES this show on PBS so when I was deciding what to do for his second birthday, it was the obvious choice. I am an expert in all things Daniel Tiger so it was pretty easy to do this party right. I wanted to share all of my pictures from the big day with you. I also included the printables at the end of the post that I used for the party. Ugga Mugga!
The FREE Printable template for this Welcome Sign is at the bottom of the post.
This Daniel Tiger Plush is Cole’s favorite thing so it had to make an appearance at the party. It sings, talks, and sleeps with him every night.
This was also his Halloween costume this year 🙂 You can get this hat from Karohook on Etsy.
These images were free on PBS Kids. They have tons of images and ideas for your little Tiger’s birthday.
We had to get our Daniel Tiger fix right before the party started 🙂
For the mantle, I just put all of his favorite books up there for fun.

I sewed some colorful paper circles together and tied them all over the place.
The “Grrrific” Birthday cake! It was my husband’s birthday too and Mississippi Mud cake is his favorite. It’s not a pretty cake but it’s SO good. I’ll have to post the recipe soon. I made this little banner by just sewing the paper pieces together and taping them to straws with washi tape.
For a favor, I made this little printable tag. I printed it out as a 5×7 and then folded it. I hot glued them to Ziploc bags that had an Oreo Pop in them.

The welcome sign won’t download for me.
Can you email it to me?
I would like to be able to add name to the sign.
Please let me know if there are any special instructions.
Hi! We are having a Daniel Tiger Party for our 3-year old! I love the picture frame hanging from your door, but I’m having a hard time finding a picture frame like that with the glass. Any idea where I can find something like that on the web or locally? Thanks!
Hey Adam…that was just a plain white frame…I think I painted it and tied the ribbon through it…easy cheesy! 🙂
Thank you for your welcome sign idea. I’m planning my son’s 1st birthday.
Hey Sandra! Great please share pictures of the party…I would love to see them! We still love Daniel in this house even two years later 🙂
Hi, did you use card stock for the favor prints and just staple to the zip lock bag? Did you use cardstock and poster board for the character prints?
Hey Jacqueline! I used cardstock for everything for the Daniel Tiger party. I think I remember hot gluing the cardstock to the ziploc bag but I can’t remember!
I to love the sign and can only download it as a jpeg, Id love to be able to ad in my kids names to use for their 3rd party this weekend. Could you kindly email it in word? I tried subscribing to your list but when I enter any info it pops me back up to the top of the page.
Hey Carly! I created this as an image so a Word document for it doesn’t exist. What you do is open it in PicMonkey.com and edit it as an image. There are TONS of great fonts available and you just print it as a picture…not a document. Email me if you need more help 🙂
The welcome sign won’t download for me, could you please email it to me? It would be perfect for my daughter’s birthday coming up. She absolutely loves ‘tigey danny’ (how she says it!). Thank you for the great ideas!
Yes I would email it to you no problem 🙂 I wonder why it’s not working!

Hi! So gad I found your blog! I’m having a Daniel Tiger party for my daughter’s third birthday and would love to use the printable sign, but when I click the link to download, I only get a small image popping up in a new window. No full sheet image. Am I doing something wrong?
Hey Jen! Did you figure it out…it should be working so I’m not sure. Email me if it doesn’t work and I can email you the file 🙂
Hi, I’m trying to download the welcome sign but it’s not on the page where the printables are listed, can you please email me the welcome sign.
It should be available for download on the actual Daniel Tiger blog post you were on originally without subscribing or going to a different page. I will check today and make sure everything is working correctly 🙂
Hi- I love all of your ideas!! Can you tell me the font name you used for your free printable sign. I want to add my son’s name and want the fonts to match. Thanks!
Hey Rachael! The two fonts are Chunk Five and Sketchblock and I used Picmonkey.com to create it and you can find both of those fonts there. Please share pictures when you are done 🙂 I would love to see the party!
Hiya I saw this listing on Amazon and it looks a lot like your free printable are you aware of this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TKR88QM/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_L2iGvbAKFXR5K
Hey Nicola! No I wasn’t aware of this until you showed me…that’s not cool! 🙂
Hi Deonna, awesome blog! My son is turning 1 soon and we will be doing a Daniel Tiger theme. Could u tell me what size are the colourful circles that go with the welcome sign? Cheers
Hey! Yeah I used my 1 inch circle punch to make those and just used my sewing machine to sew them together. 🙂
I’m not a crafty person…so I didn’t even think about using a sewing machine! I was thinking you hand-sewed all of them! I’m glad I checked the comments! haha
We’re having a Daniel Tiger party this Saturday for my son’s first birthday party! <3
This is awesome! I’m having a Daniel Tiger theme party for my son’s first birthday! Can you tell me what size are the colourful circles you used to decorate the welcome sign? ta
[…] Garland: I made these for my son’s birthday party last year and loved how cheerful they were. I included a few pictures so you could see how to […]
Thanks..I will be using most of the ideas here for my daughters 3rd bday…thanks so much!
Great I can’t wait to see some pictures. Please tag me if you share some 🙂
Your son’s Daniel Tiger Party was so adorable! Thank you for the printables – they’re too cute! I can’t wait to throw my son’s Daniel Tiger in a few weeks!
I can’t wait to see pictures 🙂 please tag me on Instagram and Twitter so that I can see them!
How do I get the printable welcome sign? I keep looking over this page and everything I click asks me to subscribe when I already did! Thanks! 🙂
I will email you the printables link but they usually just go out with the next post.
I just subscribed to your blog and I was wondering if you could email me the Daniel Tiger sign, too? I’m excited to look around your blog more. It looks really interesting and great!
Hi- I just subscribed to your wonderful site. Would you be able to email me the welcome sign? Can’t wait to make a sign for my niece’s first birthday!!! Thank you!!! Sharon
Yeah I’ll send them to you but you should be able to access my free printables after you subscribe and get them there 🙂
You did an excellent job with your son’s party!! My almost 2 year old absolutely LOVES Daniel Tiger and I hope to theme his party in a similar way.
Thank you! It was super inexpensive and fun 🙂 Please share pics if you do!
I will! I did a farm theme last year and it was so much fun(thanks a lot to Pintrest)….I spent too much and it was a lot of work, but everyone really enjoyed it which is all that mattered to me. I think Daniel Tiger will be a bit easier though not everyone even knows who who he is unless they have an obsessed Tiger watcher in their house!
Yeah just moms of little ones know the show. My son doesn’t even watch it anymore but he is still obsessed with his Daniel Tiger Plush and the toys from the show.
Hi, I love your ideas! Can you tell me what the star is on the oreo pop?
They were these really fun candy sprinkles that I just happened to find in our little grocery store. They were from the cake decorating aisle though. Hope this helps 🙂
This is adorable! I am planning my Daughters 2nd Birthday Party and this is perfect! Thank you for sharing! I just have a quick question, how did you get your Son’s name on the Grrr-iffc page it is so cute!
Just save the Printable to your computer and then use PicMonkey.com (free) to add your child’s name! Easy Cheesy!
